The Easiest Tricks to Make Windows 11 Look Even More Like MacOS


Among the things that set MacOS apart is its central dock, where you can easily access your frequently used apps (via Apple). In Windows, this is called the taskbar. However, unlike the taskbar, the dock doesn’t fill the entire bottom of your screen as it adjusts based on how many apps you add to it. It makes your desktop clean and elegant.

To give Windows the same visual appeal, you can use TaskbarX. The app makes your taskbar invisible, making it look like it doesn’t take up much space on your screen. You can either buy the app from the Microsoft Store or download it for free from its GitHub page. If you go for the second option, here’s how to install the app.

  1. Download the .zip file for your operating system.
  2. Extract and open the file.
  3. Scroll down until you see a file named TaskbarX.
  4. Click on the file with “Application” as the file type.
  5. If you see a “Windows has protected your PC” screen, select “More info” and then “Run anyway”.
  6. Wait for your app icons to automatically move to the center of the screen.

To make the taskbar transparent, return to the extracted folder and install the TaskbarX Configurator application. You will then find the “Transparent” option under the Style tab.

It should be noted that the app only works on Windows 10. However, there is a workaround for Windows 11 if you install ExplorePatcher.
